    That’s a great question.

    The answer would require mapping out a timeline to detail a chronology of events.

    It could be he somehow managed to evade police and avoid arrest…

    Some offenders can be very elusive..

    Thank you for commenting.

  2. I met this guy in Winnipeg after he responded to a job ad I place online. When I googled his name, I found out about him being on Kelowna’s most wanted list. I reported this to crime stoppers. They had all of his contact info to find and arrest him. And now I see he has been convicted of murdering 2 people. Why was he not arrested after my crime stoppers call?

    I made a few phone calls and had his record checked….

    It seems there is no disposition as of yet.

    It could be he is yet to be sentenced!

    I’ll stay on top of it and let you know when I find out.

    Thank you for reading.
